Take a romantic walk

There’s nothing more important on Valentine’s Day than spending time together and what better way than by going for a romantic walk. At Croome we have a number of self-guided walks from a short stroll round the parkland to a more challenging walk to one of our outer eye-catchers. 

Tea for two

Round off your romantic day with a visit to one of our tea-rooms and indulge yourself with delicious homemade cakes.
